Oeuf en Cocotte (Egg Baked in Ramekin)

Egg en Cocotte

My friend gifted me a set of Julia Child’s cookbooks, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, several years back (she bought it during a book sale in Australia if I did not remember wrongly), but sadly I didn’t have a chance to make anything from the cookbook… until today! Well, like I’ve always said, better late than never, right? (;

I was reading the cookbook a few nights back, tagging the pages with post-sticks of the recipes I want to try – and to be honest, there are simply too many! And I finally decided on a recipe to try today as I have all the ingredients on hand – Oeufs en Cocotte (Eggs Baked in Ramekins).
